Botox Q&A

What is Botox therapy?

Botox is an injectable medication made from a purified form of Type A botulinum that helps ease muscle activity that causes wrinkles. You may choose Botox therapy to alleviate jaw clenching and teeth grinding, too. Botox also has medical applications to ease migraines.

 

The injections work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to your muscles to reduce muscle activity. As a result, the areas of your face affected by expression or stress soften, and you look and feel better.

 

At Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry, Botox can help smooth wrinkles on the face, ease jaw and headache problems due to tension, and lessen the appearance of a gummy smile. 

How does Botox therapy reduce wrinkles?

Botox is an effective way to ease the wrinkles that appear as you make repeated facial expressions over time. These dynamic wrinkles include your: 

 

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Smoker’s lips

 

Botox therapy can also relax the muscles that contract excessively to lift your upper lip far above your gum line and show a gummy smile.

How long does it take to see the results of Botox therapy?

The results of Botox therapy start to appear just 24-48 hours following your injections. It can take 10-14 days for your full results to be noticeable. The benefits of Botox therapy last 3-4 months. 

 

The team at Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry can schedule you for retreatments once the effects of your initial Botox therapy wear off. Over time, your results may last longer as your muscles naturally ease without the medication.

Am I a candidate for Botox therapy?

You may benefit from Botox therapy if you:

 

  • Have regular headaches or migraines
  • Have TMJ Pain and discomfort
  • Have Myofacial pain 
  • Don’t like your Gummy smile

 

The team thoroughly reviews your symptoms and lifestyle to determine if Botox therapy is right for you. They may ask that you halt certain medications before treatment to prevent bruising.
